Bordighera promenade in winter
In my opinion, Bordighera is the best place to be if you wish to rest for a while without the traffic found in other resorts of the Riviera di Ponente whose term defines a territory beginning in the outskirts of Genoa up to the french border. The coastal city is located in almost the most extreme western point of Liguria Region, although benefitting in not staying, as Ventimiglia, at the very border with France.
Being also in the most southern tip, enyoys sunny and warm days, so appreciated especially in winter by residents, pensioneers established there, and tourists as well. If you practice roller skating you can measure the whole long and large promenade trail, which ecompasses the whole city coast.
